I received a question about my fancy wheelbarrow shown in my previous post on this year's topsoil delivery. It is indeed fancy since it has two wheels, stabilizer bars, implement holders, and even dual cupholders -- you might say it is a "loaded" wheelbarrow, although it could use a GPS sometimes. My wheelbarrow is new since spring 2012 when we moved a truckload of topsoil and I had trouble controlling the traditional single-wheel model. After a couple "incidents" with tipping over on turns last year, I decided to find one better suited for my needs. I went with the Majik wheelbarrow from Sam's Club and it's a lot more stable which made moving topsoil and just about anything else much easier for me this year.
As with cars, cupholders are so important I once decided against buying a certain car because it didn't have them. Apparently I'm not the only one because a few years later they began to feature them for the American market. The cupholders work pretty well unless you are loading or dumping dirt (even with a lid the drink would get dirty).
There are slots for holding tools but it's a little awkward to roll along with the tools close to my face so the slots make a good place for storing tools during breaks. It's also lower which makes it much easier to load with a shovel. The two wheels and stabilizers make it a bit harder to dump, but that's not as important an issue because now I can actually get the dirt to the dumping spot without losing it.
So that's the scoop on my new wheelbarrow which works great for me. DH prefers his traditional model, but for me, two wheelin' is both safer and more fun!
